This Time, I’m Not Going to Complain

I’m awake with my son, who is throwing up. He’s miserable and we’re tired.

But that’s ok.

I’m not complaining. I’m cherishing every single messy and difficult moment.

My love and support goes out to Maddie’s family and Thalon’s family. Two babies taken too soon. Two Mom’s who blog in my community only wishing they could take care of every single messy throw up.

My heart breaks.

And no…today I will not complain.


  1. That’s what I’ve been telling myself every time my daughter gets an attitude or wakes me up in the middle of the night because she has a booger. I can’t complain because I actually get to deal with these issues.

  2. Being a mom is a calling unlike any other in the world, it requires every emotion, every bit of energy, and every bit of love we have in us. When we’re at our worst, at our humblest, our kids still need us – it is a very demanding calling.

    Cheers to you for appreciating even the bad moments.

  3. I’ve been thinking that same thing. My heart is breaking for those families, and I know there are many others out there who have lost children that I don’t blog so I just don’t know about it. I have been hugging my boys extra close the past few days. Good and bad. I just can’t imagine life without them.

  4. Reading those stories was truly heart-breaking! Oh God how must those mothers be coping. My heart goes out to both the families.
